We are acutely aware that mums these days are in the mood for bargains when it comes to maternity wear. After all, you’re only going to be wearing these items for 7-8 months max right? Wrong! Chances are many of you will get so much joy from having the one child that you’ll go on to have two, three, four or more children. That translates into a fair amount of time you’ll be wearing maternity clothes. Now, add into the equation, the time that you are likely to be nursing your baby, let’s say a year which is a good amount of time to ensure your baby benefits from your incredibly nutritious breastmilk.
I know I wish I’d breastfed my first child for longer – it was around three months that I weaned her, This earlier weaning was partly due to post-natal anxiety but also due to finding it difficult to breastfeed in public. Come, my second child and OMG, it was so much easier being discreet when I actually wore proper breastfeeding tops and dresses! As a result, I breastfed him for eight months which was when I needed to go back to work. And how much did I enjoy breastfeeding with Ollie? It was a joy to hold him and have that special time and not be worried about prying eyes.
So, over time, we have increased our range of 2-in-1 maternity and nursing wear to not only encourage mums to breastfeed for longer, but to also make it more affordable. Our maternity come nursing dresses can be up to half as much as other brands, yet as you can see from our reviews, we don’t skimp on quality. Stretchy, soft fabrics that last many many washes enable our clothing to be worn for double the amount of time that an average maternity dress (that doesn’t have nursing access) would be worn. Our favourite one that we’ve got in stock this summer is the Ocean Stripes Dress pictured. If you love this one, you’ll probably love the one we have in black too.
